Are YOU Following Sophia Myles?

Recently Steven Moffat has suggested that Doctor Who fans start following the remarkably beautiful Sophia Myles on Twitter.

Why?

Well, he says he’ll explain later, but a certain tabloid newspaper is having none of it, claiming instead that the former Madame de Pompadour is being lined up as a permanent replacement for Karen Gillan.

Wishful thinking or an interesting old/new take on the time-interrupted companion?

Here’s the Tweet that started it all off:

Of course, Sophia Myles guest starred in 2006’s The Girl in the Fireplace (written by The Grand Moff) in which she had a proto-Pond relationship with “Fireplace Man” – the Doctor – who kept visiting her every few years of her life via a time window on a stricken spaceship, where clockwork men hoped to harvest her brain as a CPU…

…so there are plenty of gaps in her life where she could potentially have travelled with the Doctor.

Myles also appeared in the Thunderbirds movie as Lady Penelope and in recent years has appeared in such diverse series as Moonlight and Spooks.

It’s also worth pointing out that The Grand Moff has been Tweeting and referring to @SophiaMyles regularly in the past few weeks, so it could all be coincidence.

Then again, if she was to reprise a previous role or even if the team wanted someone familiar with the show, avoiding auditions and the subsequent spoilers that they can lead to is wise. After all, we wouldn’t want to overshadow Karen Gillan’s departure at this stage, would we?
